Best Answer

The keyboard and piano are NOT the same, for a couple reasons:

- The piano has a wider range.

- It is more real and acoustic.

- Better to practice on than a keyboard.

If you are sending your child to piano lessons, it is best to buy a piano. A piano will teach them how to sit correctly, and how to actually press the notes far better than a keyboard will. And most keyboard keys are smaller than the piano's keys are, so that is not a good thing, if they want to practice right. Also, when your child reaches a higher level in piano, pieces will require more strength and power. If you happen to bang too much on the keyboard, the keys will break and the electronic sound will be damaged in time as well. However, a piano can take that kind of vigorous aggression.

Hope this helped!

he keyboard and the piano are very alike in so many ways. They sound great and easy to use. They could either be an 88key piano or keyboard or an 77key piano or keyboard. But they both do have disadvantages that makes them different from each other. A keyboard is a digital piano meaning you need to plug it to play it and you no longer need to tune it up. Some keyboards have excellent features like recording and midi that you can't get on a piano. But from experience, the keyboard doesn't have the same feel and sound like the piano. Anyways, keyboards are portable. While a piano will always have this great sound that a keyboard won't be able to copy. A new piano has keys that are equal weight and you can practice your skills in a piano far better. But because the piano is manual and has piano strings inside, with due time of use, it will be off tune. You'll have to tune it up so you can use it properly. Also it takes up a lot of space. Hope i was a great help.
